The Clinical Trials Unit at The Skin Care Centre does investigator-initiated and industry-sponsored clinical studies of new dermatologic therapies in human subjects. The unit covers the full spectrum of clinical studies from Phase One through Phase Four. Most studies are multi-center, and some are conducted only at UBC. The unit is part of the University of British Columbia and the Vancouver General Hospital. Clinical trials have been conducted previously on all of the major therapeutic areas of dermatology, including acne, psoriasis, eczema, warts, skin cancer,  and hair disorders. There have also been medical clinical studies, surgical clinical studies, and cosmetic clinical studies.

In a scientifically rigorous environment, the following questions are answered in Clinical Trials:

  • Is this new therapy safe?
  • Is this new therapy effective?
  • How much more effective is this new therapy than what is currently available?
  • What’s the best way to use this new therapy?


We are centrally located in Vancouver, British Columbia; approximately 20-30 minutes from Vancouver International airport, in The Skin Care Centre.


Dr. Vincent Ho is the Director of Clinical Trials at the Skin Care Centre. We are able to draw from our pool of faculty members at the Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia. Our site further benefits from additional patient population from the part-time faculty dermatologists in the Greater Vancouver area. The facility is staffed with 3 full-time and one part time Clinical Research Coordinators.
